dangerous the civil war has become, not to mention the new evidence that the white house has now acknowledged of chemical weapons used by the serial government of its own people. president obama says, first, we need to verify that this information is correct. make sure it is reliable. lawmakers are pressing for action. it was president obama they say who drew the line in the sand and said that if the red line was crossed, the u.s. would have to get involved. the question now, how do we get involved? there doesn't seem to be a lot of support for boots on the ground. however, air strikes are certainly a possibility as we see the situation even as of this morning getting worse >>> new this morning, a brutal scene overseas. the search for survivors now over at the site of that terrifying factory building collapse in bangladesh. at least 380 people now confirmed dead. today, the prime minister of bangladesh touring that site and a nearby hospital where the wounded are now being treated. in the meantime, the owner of that illegally constructed building now in custody. he was actually c
